Is it a coincidence that today is also “As Young As You Feel Day?” National Goof-Off Day was first observed in 1976, as far as we can tell. It is a day of relaxation and a time for some goo-humored silliness and fun. Everyone needs to set aside at least one day a year to goof off. Let the games begin!

Colleen Paige, founder of National Puppy Day, reminds us that “Puppies are the most trusting and joyous creatures on the planet. Oh, to be more like a puppy.” Not only does this day celebrate puppies for all the joy they bring to our lives, it is also a opportunity to educate the public about adoption and to avoid puppy mills.
